DIGHTON— Chief Robert MacDonald and the Dighton Police Department are pleased to share that the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office will present a “Hidden in Plain Sight” exhibit this week.
The demonstration will be held on Thursday, Jan. 23, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Dighton-Rehoboth High School Auditorium, 2700 Regional Road, North Dighton. It will include a mock teenager’s bedroom that parents and guardians will be able to tour under the guidance of Dighton Police officers.
The bedroom exhibit will have several items that could be used as drug paraphernalia, as well as demonstrate common hiding places for drugs, drug paraphernalia and alcohol. It will also feature more discreet items found in a teen’s room that may serve as a warning sign of a teen’s struggle with addiction.
The program, created by Power to the Parent, helps parents to recognize potential signs that their teen could be using drugs or alcohol.
“This exhibit offers parents in our community the opportunity to gain some insight into where teens may be hiding drugs and alcohol in their rooms,” said Chief MacDonald. “We hope that the information parents gain from this exhibit will equip them with the knowledge needed to recognize potential warning signs of addiction.”
